When you feel like a failure at motherhood

As I write this, I’m feeling physically exhausted. But I can’t just walk to my bed and lie down, which is what I really want to do. I’ve got an article to polish, pending blogs to work on, dishes to wash, clothes to prepare, a house to tidy up, and a million other things that I have no idea where or how to start on.

Make brushing more fun for your kids with Minions!

It’s funny, but making my kids brush their teeth all the time can sometimes exhaust the heck out of me. I’m serious! I was told beforehand that it’s common for boys not to be so eager to wash up and brush their teeth, but I dismissed it then thinking it can’t be true, only to find out years later that it is true — for us, at least!
